DFPC Reference is the new reference

March 2014, author: Russell Lichter
"Within literally seconds of powering up with the DFPCs, my skepticism was replaced with astonishment."

"They made more difference to the sound than any other electronics change I'd made over the years."

"...filters noise with absolutely no dynamic restriction."

"It is a very clever approach and does not, as far as I can figure, involve any audiophile hocus-pocus."

"The instruments and the space around them have a finer level of definition in terms of both physical dimension and sonority. They are simply more there, present and physically real."

"...impressive trove of additional nuance, additional clues about the piano, rendering it more real, more (that word again) present."

"The DFPC Reference cord clearly conveys more of that physicality, and hence more excitement and musical pleasure."

"There are additional sonic clues with the Reference cord, rendering the delicate sound of the vibrating glass with greater detail and a more radiant sense of presence. Simply gorgeous."

"The LessLoss DFPC Reference cords are the finest I've heard in this system."

DFPC Reference deemed world class in Denmark

February 2014, author: Kurt Lassen
"The perceived spatial reproduction is world class."

"It's amazing how big a sound stage we get with this cable."

"The music is smooth as silk, and at the same time the lowest frequencies and soundstage are incredibly deep and beautiful, and extremely dynamic. You can play louder than usual, and without any listening fatigue."

"The whole band is completely detached from the speakers and almost slipping on and around the listener."

"The sound is almost making a party in front of the listener."

"You will notice that the music is now not only coming FROM the speakers, but fills the entire listening room. Impressive! Really impressive. And worth every penny!"

"The LessLoss DFPC Reference cable performs with a fantastic perspective and a deep and absolutely musical sound that is extremely beautiful and addictive. Silky smooth sound, paired with great dynamics and a wealth of details. It is the cheapest power cable in this test [includes Anzus Mainz POM, Nordost Frey2, Entreq's Apollo], but at the same time the one with the greatest "enjoyment factor" in terms of price. Buy it, it's simply amazing! World class!!"

Mono and Stereo decorates the DFPC Reference with Editor Award

February, 2014, author: Matej Isak
"It is a pleasant surprise that the LessLoss DFPC Reference power cord offers both transparency and dynamic potency impressively. We're talking here not about jumping one or two steps upwards, but a whole flight of stairs in one step."

"In my numerous demonstrations, even to the most die-hard skeptics, the result of insertion of a DFPC power cable brought such an obvious shift in performance, that it changed their firm beliefs instantly."

"Louis Motek and the LessLoss team managed to bring both the DFPC Signature and Reference cables to the level where real Magic happens."

"The LessLoss Reference will add the authority of a higher order with everything even more in line. More right, more spot on and with more bloom that recalls a truly lifelike event."

"The new LessLoss DFPC Reference builds upon the established achievements of the DFPC Signature series with serious, undeniable impact. Inherited are the same basic advantages of the DFPC Signature while adding a new dimension of what I'd venture to call "dynamic simplicity." This type of performance allows originally recorded nuance to come through like never before."

"In my previous review of the DFPC Signature, I didn't award the cable with a dedicated title, and I always felt I should have done so. But this time I'm being assertive: the Mono & Stereo Editor Award goes to the LessLoss DFPC Reference power cable. Why? Because it clearly represents a new threshold for established performance norms and brings out a level of performance that you'll be hard pressed to find, either at this price range, or even at several multiples thereof."

"In summary: the LessLoss DFPC Reference is a power cable with three star features: its evolution is founded in logic (Skin-filtering), its implementation is carried out well (both attractive and flexible), and its price is in relation to actual results."

High End News says DFPC Signature sets new standard

February 2014, author: Ari-Martti Pohtola
I did not believe that one could get that kind of sound just by using one measly power cable."

"Ordering the Signature power cable turned out to be one of the best moves I made during my 25 years of audiophile experience."

"I think it is the only power cable at this price level that combines all of these virtues within one solution: speed (as fast as Nordost, but at the same time more relaxed), a beautiful midrange (better than my old Siltechs), excellent top end (better than any other power cable I have tested) and as quiet as the best power cables I have tested."

"With the DFPC Signature you really achieve this synergy of smoothness, relaxedness, and even more vividness into the sound. Actually, not a hint of aggressiveness was noticed."

"From all of the combinations, the Signature connected directly to the wall gave the best sonic results."

"The DFPC Signature [direct to component] did remove even more noise, and the result was overall better resolution. The mid-band became very relaxed and pretty, the highs were the most natural I have heard with any other power cables, and gone was the aggressiveness some of the other 'fast' sounding power cables introduced to my system earlier."

"...exceptional products that really help the serious audiophile achieve the best their systems are capable of."

HiFi Pig magazine recommends the DFPC Signature

January, 2014, author: Danny Worth
"The flexibility of the cable is fantastic."

"The upper registers had a quality of control that gripped me into the performance."

"Ambient harmonics and dynamics were great."

"The cable also seems to extract a certain magic from the ambiance of the recording, helping to give a natural nature and almost lifelike take on the music."

"The cleanliness, pace and kick of those upper bass registers were fantastic."

"Complexity of rhythm and structure is a key accomplishment of the LessLoss cables."

"The LessLoss DFPC Signature power cables have a sonic signature of ease and stability; they open a window to individual portions of the music yet still remain locked on to the performance as a whole. The midrange has a sense of liquidity, the upper frequencies are fleshed out and controlled, with good insight into a layered performance and there's good extension to the bass leaving me to conclude that these are indeed an extremely well accomplished cable."

"There is a wonderful sense of musicality as a whole and a great sense of connection to the music."

"The cables look and feel great, are very well made, and you do feel that pride of ownership when you have one in your hand."

"All in all I personally thoroughly enjoyed them and would recommend them for their natural ease of presentation, musical insight and build quality."

Audio Excursions tests DFPC Signature with extreme headphone system

January, 2014, author: Austin Morrow
"The LessLoss DFPC power cables aren't warm, meaty, or colored in any way, shape or form. Nor are they bright, sterile, or top-heavy. In fact, they are extremely neutral and transparent."

"The LessLoss DFPC's were able to extract more detail and show the tiniest nuances in a recording, even through both the HE-500's and the LCD-2's."

"The lower octaves were tighter, more accurate, and had an extremely fast transient response. The midrange wasn't forward or laid back, but sat right in line with the rest of the frequency band, and had extreme clarity and fantastic vocality presence, but wasn't edgy in anyway whatsoever."

"The DFPC's were able to image very, very well."

"I felt like instrumental separation was simply unparalleled, and imaging was spot on."

Stereo-Head (Italy) reviews the DFPC Reference power cable

January, 2014, author: Matteo Turotti
"The improvement is immediately recognizable and very clear on both DACs used."

"The textured detail is increased without introducing listener fatigue. Even the general musicality, especially in the deepest bass articulation, is improved. The performance does not suffer despite the filtering effect, and remains perfectly intact."

"The music seems to come from outside the headphones. The result is very natural and pleasant, very similar to a power conditioner while being much less cumbersome."

"The most worrying thing is that usually when power supplies are filtered, dynamics is cut, but with the LessLoss DFPC Reference, this does not happen, and the dynamics come though at their best."

"Their construction is really good, and, in spite of their thickness, are flexible and easy to handle."

"These cables will significantly improve the performance of your digital source in the first place, but they also work really well on the amp, without sacrificing dynamics."

"The LessLoss DFPC Reference power cables are the best we've ever tried."

Mono and Stereo published performance results with DFPC Reference

October, 2013, author: Matej Isak
"The LessLoss DFPC Signature power cord already thoroughly established itself among cables several times its price. Because of its real world performance."

"The DFPC Signature is the cable with which I can demonstrate real and instant change in a most easy and direct demonstration. Even non-audiophiles can hear the obvious difference. There's no listener prepping or special training needed. An instant shift in performance change is perceived."

"At the risk of appearing pathetic, I felt that my review itself owes it to the performance level of the new DFPC Reference to at least represent an attempt at doing it some justice."

"...pure electrical power fluidity, transparency and stressless impact. Not many power cables are capable of being such a transparent medium."

"The LessLoss DFPC Reference power cord offers both transparency and dynamic potency impressively. We're talking here not about jumping one or two steps upwards, but a whole flight of stairs in one step."

"The actual possible illusion of certain recorded musical events being not envisioned but in fact materialised is what separates the countless shiny offerings found on the market today from the very special ones which do indeed deliver the 'magic'."

"The new LessLoss DFPC Reference builds upon the LessLoss DFPC Signature series with serious, undeniable impact. They inherited the basic advantages of the DFPC series while adding a new dimension of what I'd venture to call 'dynamic simplicity.'"

pf (Positive-Feedback) magazine reviews the Blackbody and DFPC

June, 2013, author: Jeremy Kipnis
"The following depicts my personal experience with the Blackbodies over the course of one year. I did not want to rush publishing my observations because of the novel nature of the matter, and my initial cautious skepticism."

"Virtually grain-free presentation."

"Expanded and explosive dynamics with intricate low level details."

"Much more spacious sound staging with more stable and seemingly larger presentation size."

"Increased focus and weight of imaging featuring correct tembral presentation."

"Quieter background leading to a blacker black–perceivably longer reverb tails."

"More visceral and palpable (sound "freed from the confines" of the electronics)."

"The harmonic structure of instruments and the acoustic space itself all show a new (inter)related connection amongst themselves along with a wholeness of sonic presentation within the hall which was simply not audible before."

"The sense of strain that was present above a certain volume level during playback of known materials is no longer as present."

"Inner details of the recorded acoustic venue and the placement of individual instruments within that space has become vastly more solid and life-like, tangible and palpable."

"In spite of hearing this performance many hundreds of times, I now find myself hearing YET NEW things I have never heard, before."

"Inner harmonies are now clear during both the most massive and the most silent moments. And the degree to which the soundstage hangs free from the speakers is now palpable and visceral, very much the way the best analog discs and tapes sound!"

"There is a new level of detail present in the playback, which has been completely obscured until now."

"The tonal quality of the instruments (and even voices) became fuller in the bass registers, while the treble became both smoother and more open and extended."

"The presentation exhibited a much greater degree of bloom with much tighter dynamics."

"This made everything I played sound more realistic and less like listening to a recording."

"I hear much more space being delineated along with great textural information about the individual instruments and the people playing them."

"More explosive dynamics with wider soundstage dimensions and clearer anchoring of the individual acoustic elements within it. I would call the difference substantial!"

"If your audio system has teeth and nails, then the DFPC power cords will deliver all the power and music, but remove the artificial bite and scratch that affect most every playback system."

"Find some seriously hidden wonders that have been lurking behind the HF noise and distortion. It will wake up your entire system and make your music library sound new; they are that caliber of an investment."

"Together, the Blackbody and DFPC power cord provide a reliable method of absorbing and deflecting both wire-bound and airborne electronic garbage from getting into your sound (and video) system; much for the better, as you will soon hear."

"DFPCs and Blackbody units confer a progressively more focused, holographic, and dynamic sound."

"Makes almost any priced system sound more like listening past the recording technology and feeling like you are listening to the real thing!"

"The DFPC power cords strip away further grit, grain, hash, and haze from the sound, resulting in a far less electronic sounding stereophonic reproduction."

"These two different approaches to EM field management and containment offer one of the few scientifically based audio (and video) tweaks to have crossed my path in my four plus decades as a professional audio engineer."

"Highly recommended!"
